Roy Barker Sr
Originally from Seattle, Roy Barker has moved all over the country. Roy first entered the real estate industry in 1985 while living in Louisiana. Currently, he serves the housing market in Northwestern Florida, where he primarily works with investors and clients serving in the military. Roy began working in Florida in 2001 and has a sharp knowledge of the local market. In the time since, he has earned his real estate licenses in Washington, Louisiana, and Florida. With nearly 40 years of experience, Roy is well positioned to protect his clients’ best financial interests and is particularly adept at interpreting the legal and contractual components of each real estate transaction.
Prior to his career as a real estate professional, Roy worked in the United States Air Force for nine years as a computer operations manager. After leaving the Air Force, he worked in banking before transitioning into computer sales and analysis. Given his strong background in sales, banking, management, and customer service, Roy is able to provide exceptional care to his real estate clients while expertly guiding them through the buying and selling processes. Roy also has experience in construction and renovation and uses these experiences to advise his clients about project feasibility and potential hidden costs.
Roy has two grown children and six grandchildren, two of which also work for Dockside Realty Inc. Outside of work, Roy is active in his church, where he was previously an elder and did a lot of preaching in the past. When he was younger, he was an avid scuba diver and instructor. As he’s aged, however, he’s primarily interested in traveling and enjoying cruises with his family.
